Israel's Defense Forces confirmed on Thursday that two rockets were fired from Gaza toward the center of Israel, triggering rocket sirens in Tel Aviv. Video broadcast on Israeli TV showed two Israeli interceptor missiles streaking into the sky above Tel Aviv, Israel's commercial capital, and detonating.
No injuries were reported.
It was the first time sirens had rung out in the city since the 2014 Gaza war. Israel's military has responded with widespread airstrikes. "It is responsible for what happens within the Strip and what emanates from it".
While no group claimed responsibility for the attack, Israeli Education Minister and member of security cabinet Naftali Bennett told RT he believes Hamas bears responsibility for the incident anyway.
Earlier this week, Israel struck Hamas targets in Gaza in response to rocket fire on southern Israel, near the border. The territory is home to other militant groups, including Islamic Jihad, an Iranian-backed armed organization that also has a formidable rocket arsenal.
About 40 minutes after the alarm went up, traffic was flowing normally on Tel Aviv's main Ayalon highway. "The time has come to defeat Hamas once and for all", he said.
Israel's municipality announced that public bomb shelters in the Tel Aviv area would be opened.
Since the protests began, one Israeli soldier was shot dead by a Palestinian sniper along the frontier and another was killed during an undercover raid into Gaza.
